Yaquina Head Lighthouse - Oregon Coast Canvas Print
This Oregon coast canvas print features the beautiful Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It's depicted against with a rainy night sky dominating the backdrop and enveloping the scenery of this historic light.
Yaquina Head Light is a 19th century lighthouse. Construction started on the 93 foot lighthouse in 1871 and was completed by 1873. A soft warm glow emanates from the small cottage at the light's base. This is apparently not the original keeper's house which was ultimately demolished. Regardless, there's something welcoming and comforting about the glow both from the cottage and from the lantern itself. Do you feel that way, too?
The lighthouse in its early years was known to locals by the name Cape Foulweather. Doesn't that sound like something out of a book? The light was automated in the 1960's when it still belonged to the US Coast Guard. Today it belongs to the Bureau of Land Management as part of the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. It was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
This Oregon artwork has a lovely mood that is a mix of the cool blues of a rain swept night on the coast and the warm golden colors of the lantern and cottage lighting. I love lighthouses in general but I particularly love creating artwork like this that depicts them with the lamp aglow at night. What caught your eyes in this Yaquina Head lighthouse canvas print? I hope you'll share your thoughts about this scene.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
